I READ A BOOK IN 1974, ‘LIKE A MIGHTY WIND’ BY MEL TARI AND I ALSO GOT THE SISTER COPY, ‘THE GENTLE BREEZE OF JESUS’. THEY WERE REPORTS ON THE INDONESIAN REVIVAL.
THEY WERE SO STIMULATING THEY QUALIFY TO BE THE NEXT CHAPTERS IN THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES.
AFTER THAT MY SPIRIT MAN WENT AFTER THE SUPERNATURAL LIKE A HUNGRY WOLF.
THAT LED ME TO FIND OUT WHAT IS BEHIND THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES IN A FIVE DAY FASTING, PRAYER AND STUDYING.
IN THE COURSE OF THAT FASTING, I WAS INVITED TO A MEETING TO PREACH, I CAN’T TELL HOW I MOVED FROM THE FRONT TO THE BACK IN THAT MEETING. I WAS LITERALLY FLOATING.
PEOPLE JUST PRAY AND PRAY FOR EVERYTHING. STOP THAT! CAN YOU PRAY TO BECOME A MEDICAL DOCTOR WITHOUT GOING TO MEDICAL SCHOOL?
THERE IS NO SHORTCUT TO DEALING WITH DARKNESS WITHOUT LIGHT.
– Bishop David Oyedepo on OPERATING IN THE SUPERNATURAL 6 at LFC Midweek Communion Service Canaanland Part A
The supernatural is the natural estate of the believer. John 3:8. No exemption, everyone born again is born to operate in the realm of the supernatural naturally.
That is why we are a peculiar people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. We are to be marvelled at not to be pitied by men. To be envied by all. People will see us and say ‘Praise the Lord’ for him. You mean God can make that out of a man?
That of a woman? That of a boy and a girl? So my people keep struggling because they lack the knowledge of the truth that will position them in their inheritance. It is your inheritance but you have to know what it takes to operate in it.
Jesus, we are all here at your feet waiting to receive from you, speak to everyone tonight. Let everyone return from here with the rod in their hand with which to keep operating the realm of the supernatural and so let it be in Jesus name.
Our Prophetic Focus for the month like we know is I AM REDEEMED A WONDER TO MY WORLD.
The anchor scripture is John 3:8. The teaching focus and we are in the sixth of the series right now is OPERATING IN THE SUPERNATURAL.
You can’t operate a car without learning how to operate the car. You may buy an iPhone but you need to know how to operate it. If you have a computer system you need to know how to operate it. You can’t operate in any realm without learning how to. We cannot operate in any realm including the supernatural without learning how to.
People just pray and pray. Stop that! Can you pray to emerge a medical doctor without going to medical school?
No! If you have a vision of getting into the medical profession then you must have a sense of going through the training otherwise you will be a fake native doctor. Operation demands training.
Knowing how it works, knowing how to put it to work. You don’t learn it, you can’t engage it.
One time, one professional body said they wanted to give me an award, I said I am not in that profession.
They said but you are encouraging them. So if I am encouraging a doctor does it mean I am now in the medical association? No! Please. Nigerians do a lot of funny things. I am not in that profession. That I am encouraging a soldier does not make me a soldier. I now say I am a General, they ask me how I say I have encouraged many Generals. Does that tally? People just need to come to terms with the reality of the Kingdom. He said study if you don’t want to end up ashamed. Every provision made requires a working knowledge to access.
Operating in the Supernatural, which is our natural estate in redemption. An old man was down with high blood pressure, hypertension and dizziness and had been praying for 17 years. A believer and a priest, born again.
One day he went to a bookstore and bought three books. Healing by Kenneth Hagin, another book in healing by Fredrick K.C. Price and Keys to Divine Healing. He said I went through your book, Keys To Divine Healing and on the third day I took the communion as prescribed and immediately the 17-year-old bondage on me was loose.
There is no shortcut to dealing with darkness without light. Light is the husband of darkness any day.
When light shows up, darkness backs out. Without the rod of the Word, you can’t operate in the supernatural. Exodus 4:17. You can’t operate in the realm of signs without taking the rod in your hand. People don’t want to. We have a whole volume they call Signs and Wonders Today.
It is a catalogue, a compendium, an encyclopaedia of signs and wonders today. Many have never read one line. They bought it, they bought it for others too.
I read a book in 1974 on the Mighty Wind of God by Mel Tari and I also got the sister copy, The Gentle Breeze of Jesus by Mel and Lona Tari.
They were all reports on the Indonesian Revival. They were so stimulating they qualify to be the next chapters in the Acts of the Apostles.
My spirit man went after the supernatural like a hungry wolf. That led me to say let me find out what is behind the Acts of the Apostles. I was 5 days in fasting and prayer reading the Acts Of The Apostles. If you dont look for it, you can’t find it. He that seeketh, findeth. He that knocketh on the door, it shall be opened unto.
You can’t sit down here under one hour teaching and say that you have gotten everything. No! In the course of that fasting, I was invited to a meeting to preach, so I went there. I couldn’t tell how I moved from the front to the back in that meeting. I was literally floating.
By the time I turned back, everybody was backwards facing me. They were wondering what is going on, is this man flying somewhere? I didn’t know too myself. Matthew 7:7-8. You can’t find the rod without seeking it.
I read the book The Apostle of Faith, a material on Smith Wigglesworth in 1979. I became wild in my spirit. Light broke out on Ephesians 2:6 and Ephesians 1:20-21. Church Gist. Far above mentality just gripped me, I was looking for any devil to show that I have found it. If you don’t look for it, you can’t find it. The rod is not on the streets, it is in the book. We must go for it.
However, we have come to discover that the Holy Ghost is the mastermind of the supernatural. He helps our access to the rod to command the supernatural. John 16:12-14. He is our guide into all truth and the truth implies access to the rod that puts us in command of signs and wonders. John 14:26. When He arrived on the day of Pentecost, revelation exploded through Peter. Explosion of revelation.
That is not a fisherman’s content. That was super intelligent content. They were pricked in their heart and three thousand turned their heart to Jesus. That is the principal ministry of the Holy Ghost, it is to enhance our access into the truth which provides us access to the rod required to command the supernatural in our areas of concern.
